See the Pyramids Along the Nile....

Category: Obituary

The Pee Wee King/Redd Stewart composition, "You Belong to Me," is a masterpiece of American music. Jim Reeves recorded the song on his album Jim Reeves, and a Patsy Cline rendition was on The Patsy Cline Story. It is best remembered, however, as the biggest hit in the career of Jo Stafford.

Jo Stafford died July 16 of congestive heart failure at the age of 90.

Although most of her career was in pop music, she did have one notable contribution to country. She was Cinderella G. Stump, the female vocalist on the Red Ingle & Natural Seven recording, "Tim-Tay-Shun." Additionally, a number of her pop hits were covers of country songs.
